the girl knows how to sing

I can tell you right now...21 months is the best age.
It's also one of the hardest {busy, busy, busy!} but let's focus on the best.
This video, my friends, is some of the best of the best.
Minnie has known how to sing the abc's {ok, some of the letters get a little muffled, but she gets most of them} for the last 4 months or so.
It melts my heart every time she sings a song.
Sometimes she'll just start singing a song I've sung to her a million times and she'll have most of it down pat.
Out. of. nowhere.
It's amazing.

Music {"gigic" as she calls it for some reason} is Minnie's thing.
Much of our road trip to California was saved by Raffi's tunes. Love that guy.
Minnie's little body has moved to a beat since she was an infant and it hasn't stopped.
It's kind of magical so see all of Minnie's preferences develop.
And 21 months is incredible because it seems like everything she's been taking in over her lifetime is finally all clicking and she can put together words and sentences and has become a real live little kid.
It's sad and exciting all at once.
I'm having a hard time letting go of the "baby" in Minnie, but I'm working on it.

P.S. please excuse the no-pants-just-rolled-out-of-bed-crazy-hair look. It's our favorite thing to sport these days, even out in the front yard.


  1. L, M, N, O, P!!! Her face is so funny!!! She seriously has moved to the beat for forever. Her hips definitely do not lie!!

  2. Um, OH MY GOSH. SO so so so so so PRECIOUS AND AWESOME!!! So glad you caught this on tape for us to watch. xo
